You can blame it on New Jersey soils. Depending on the soil composition and ground moisture, soils will expand and contract over time, leading to voids under the concrete. This is thanks to the clay components in the subsoil level, which are particularly absorbent. All soils are made up of sand, silt, and clay. While New Jersey soils have varying amounts of clay, it is the clay elements that contribute to soil shrinkage underneath your concrete. As voids form, the soil is unable to support the concrete and it will begin to sink, often unevenly. Your concrete will also sink if the soil under the concrete was too weak to begin with to and is unable to support the weight of the concrete slabs and the loads placed on the concrete (cars, equipment, furnishings). This process is called “concrete settlement.” Erosion and the freeze/thaw cycle as winter turns into spring contributes to this process in New Jersey.
Concrete problems often are associated with two notable characteristics of the material: weight and stiffness. If the soil beneath a concrete slab is not sufficiently dense or strong, the slab’s weight will push down on the soil, causing the slab to sink below its proper level. This often happens when the soil is weak to begin with or there is high clay content in the soil, expanding and shrinking with ground moisture levels. If the slab is well-supported in one area but not in another, concrete’s inability to flex will often cause the slab to crack – sinking in one area while remaining stable in another. Sunken concrete is a very common problem, often occurring in sidewalks, driveways, patios, and other slab-on-grade applications.
In addition to looking for a New Jersey concrete repair company who serves your town or region, you want to know that they understand the causes for failing concrete and have concrete repair solutions that are effective, long-term, and affordable.
PolyLevel is a two-part expanding foam solution effective in many concrete lifting applications, in both residential and commercial settings. Concrete repair alternatives to PolyLevel include complete concrete replacement and “mud jacking,” an industrial application that uses a thick cement slurry to fill in the gap underneath sunken concrete. Both of these techniques are excessive when fixing a set of stairs that has pulled away from the home, or raising a patio concrete slab back to its original level. These alternative methods are disruptive, time-consuming, costly, and don’t address the soil-related issues that cause concrete settlement. Using foam to raise sunken concrete is the best solution for many concrete problems because it is fast, effective, less disruptive to property, and affordable. In addition, PolyLevel is a less intrusive process for lifting concrete that doesn't add more weight to the problem.
